In case anyone has been living under a rock, the defamation trial brought by Johnny Depp against his ex-wife Amber Heard on accounts of defamation came to an end favoring Johnny Depp. While he won the trial on three counts, Amber Heard had one in her favor. Due to this, she is expected to pay her ex-husband an amount of $10.35 million. Since she is also to receive $2 million from Johnny Depp, the amount decreases a bit to $8.35 million.

Since it is quite clear that Amber Heard does not have that amount just laying around, she turned to her insurance company for help. While she had taken a $1 million liability policy, the insurance company has backed out from paying the damages.

In July, Heard’s insurance company claimed that the actor had to pay such a hefty amount as a result of her own, willful misconduct. Therefore, according to Californian law, the company is not liable to pay the damages. Instead of getting the money from her insurance company, she found herself at the receiving end of yet another lawsuit. The company sued Heard so it wouldn’t have to pay the actress.

As we all know by now that the Aquaman actress is not one to give up so easily. According to TMZ, in an interesting turn of events, she has now countersued the insurance company. It looks like she is going to make sure the company reaches its hands into its pockets and brings out $8.35 million to give to Johnny Depp.

The counter comes as Heard believes that the deal she struck with the insurance company was one not based on any conditions and that she was fully liable to the company’s protection, no matter the outcome of the defamation trial. Heard claims that denying to pay the damages was a breach of contract and is all set to take the company to court.

Amber Heard Against Two Insurance Companies

Heard is attempting to get two insurance companies, Travelers Commercial Insurance Company and New York Marine General Insurance Company to cover the damages. In her quest, she is currently being represented by David L. Axelrod and Jay Ward Brown. Kirk Pasich is also a part of her legal team.

New York Marine was sued by Travelers for getting reimbursement of half of what the company spent while dealing with Heard’s case. While Travelers believed Heard should choose her own lawyers, the New York Marine, along with a judge settled on using cheaper, local lawyers as the case seemed to be a straightforward one.

New York Marine claims that their appointed lawyers were left out by Roberta Kaplan and Elaine Charlson Bredehoft. The company now demands the return of a bit over $600,000 for the contribution they made to Heard’s defense fund. Pasich is currently trying to get Heard out of this mess.
